Overview

Joan Chen's romantic drama arrives on DVD in a presentation that looks and sounds fine, but offers little in the way of frills. Autumn in New York has been given two transfers which are both included on this disc: a letterboxed transfer which preserves the film's original 1.85:1 aspect ratio (it's also enhanced for widescreen televisions) as well as a pan-and-scan full-frame version. The film's original English language soundtrack has been included in a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, as well as an alternate Spanish language track in Dolby Digital Surround and a French version in Dolby Digital 5.1. The film is closed captioned in English, and has been encoded with optional subtitles in Spanish and French. There are no commentary tracks, trailers, or additional features, adding up to a quality presentation of the film that will satisfy fans who don't demand any bells and whistles.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The May-December affair between Richard Gere and Winona Ryder occasionally brightens the otherwise gloomy Autumn in New York, a glossy if overly familiar romantic drama directed by Joan Chen. Gere is appropriately rakish as the 48-year-old womanizing restaurateur who becomes smitten by Ryder, a 28-year-old designer. She soon learns he's something of a bad boy, albeit one worth redeeming. The catch is, she's got a bad heart and could die at almost any moment. The filmmakers give this badly scuffed premise better treatment then might be expected, applying polish with location shots of picturesque Manhattan locations and buffing it to a glittery sheen with nice supporting turns from Anthony LaPaglia, Elaine Stritch, and Jill Hennesey. Ultimately, Autumn falls back on the hoariest conventions of old-fashioned, three-handkerchief weepies, but with Gere and Ryder in the leads, it's a great cry.
